When Life gives you SHit

When one is in a state of joy, one can be thankful for just about anything. Today I was thankful for rain. Today I was thankful for napisan. 

Woke up this morning for a run, the sky looked decent so I walked outside, only to feel a few drops of rain. So I went back into the house to grab my rain jacket. As soon as I had finished my warm up walk, I felt a solid thud on my arm. Looked down and ewwww white bird droppings. I was so thankful for the rain. If not for the rain, the droppings would have landed directly on my arm. And because of the protection of my coat, I was able to continue running. Why stop and turn around?

When I have everything that I need. Everything else that comes my way just seems like a sweet bonus. I have already received eternal life. I know that I am loved by my heavenly father. Everything else- these surprises during the day, gifts in the mail, messages from my friends, encouraging emails and lovely facebook messages, are all just icing on the cake. 

A friend asked me what I wanted for my birthday. And I realised that I am in want of nothing for myself. But I will in fact post a list of things I want people to get me this year... (to be updated)

Psalm 23

A psalm of David.
 1 The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
 3 he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
   for his name’s sake.
4 Even though I walk
   through the darkest valley,[a]
I will fear no evil,
   for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
   they comfort me.
 5 You prepare a table before me
   in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
   my cup overflows.
6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me
   all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD

Your love- Brandon Heath

I felt it first when I was younger
A strange connection to the light
I tried to satisfy the hunger
I never got it right
I never got it right

So I climbed a mountain and l built an altar
Looked out as far as I could see
And everyday I’m getting older
I’m running outta dreams
I’m running outta dreams

But Your love
Your love
The only the thing that matters is Your love
Your love is all I have to give
Your love is enough to light up the darkness
It’s Your love
Your love
all I ever needed is Your love

You know the effort I have given
And you know exactly what it cost
And though my innocence was taken
Not everything is lost
Not everything is lost nooooo

You’re the hope in the morning
You’re the light when the night is falling
You’re the song when my heart is singing
it’s Your love
You’re the eyes to the blind man
You’re the feet to the lame man walking
You’re the sound of the people singing
It’s Your love
